Japanese Garden Haiku







A WHITE SWAN SWIMMING
PARTING WITH HER 
UNMOVED BREAST
CHERRY-PETALED POND
                       ~Roka










MY SHADOWY PATH
I'VE SWEPT ALL DAY
AND NOW...OH NO!
CAMELLIA-SHOWER!
                     ~Yaha














DEAD MY OLD FINE HOPES 
AND DRY MY DREAMING
BUT STILL...
IRIS, BLUE EACH SPRING
                      ~Shushiri
